Should the database size double after I Dropdb followed by create new database (using Odoo database management) with same name?

I'm using Odoo V10.0

Is this a known problem? My database seems to be twice as large as it used to be now.

That was it thanks. I did suspect the filestore but convinced myself it was the database somehow! Thanks Rob.

If you are dropping the database via PostgreSQL, you are not deleting the filestore that is used for attachments.

You will have to delete the filestore using Operating System commands - it is located at ~<user_running_odoo>/.local/share/Odoo/filestore/<name_of_database>
